those seeming alternative. people just look at stalled and. feel to it it doesn't. wash but that stuff mocks me what i find most compelling about mark says his belief that social liberate. for the individual can only happen if that hope for liberation is available to everyone. comet's was a philosopher journalist and economist two hundred years after his birth his ideas are still relevant. today the sweeping changes happening in the wake of globalization sparking fresh debates about capitalism and social inequality. marx himself insisted that the job of philosophers was not just to interpret the world but to change it. over the years many have sought to put his ideas into practice in widely differing ways and with widely varying results.
7:23 am
in many parts of the world people have invoked col marx proclaimed revolutions in his name ten society on its head. most of those experiments on the history but capitalism which marx displaced has proven more resilient than he would ever have imagined each but it's just the traditional marxist idea that you enact a revolution and put others in charge and your problem is solved that's proven itself a failure and it's no surprise when you have class struggle and suddenly everything is turned around and the previous winners are now losers they won't just suddenly

of his future ideas and work. as marx would later argue industrialization gave rise to a new economic system capitalism and a new class of people the proletariat this new proletariat he believed would inevitably cost of the yoke of capitalist oppression and give rise to a new social order. but this revolution was a long time coming it did not take place until long after marxist death and it happened where marx least expected it in backward russia with vladimir lenin the communist revolutionary at its head. leaning by as i had seen in all hands had for decades associated with a group of left wing politicians the second enter. national they all believed that if they educated workers about their true situation workers would all refused to go to war against one another instead of the international problem would join forces

and unite and spark a world revolution. that's just that didn't happen which was a crushing blow for many thought alist lenin included that's a got out early in. the first world war was the first toppled war which demanded not only mobilization of an army but mobilization of the civilian population to meet the needs of the war effort and this was something the czarist system simply could not comprehend. increasingly food was short the only party in those calling clearly for an end to the war is the bolshevik party using this rising tide of antiwar feeling lenin begins to argue with the bolshevik party must seize power in the name of the

soviets. bugs is often said to be deterministic in the sense that he thought that socialism would come about fairly inevitably from the contradictions of capitalism lenin was much more of a volunteer a study he believed in will power a lenin didn't think that capitalism alone would create revolution so lenin developed this very particular conception of the party in which professional revolutionaries would lead to the masses. without lenin there wouldn't have been a bolshevik revolution. yet as it's all happening the revolution was a hugely charismatic event for some a vision and inspiration for others a nightmare that's all.
7:30 am
lenny's hope was that the russian example would be taken up by the german workers and that the two countries in alliance could make a revolution and overcome russia's problem which was its intense poverty and its intense social and economic backwardness. germany was absolutely central in the perspective of the bolsheviks for the first few years. was an optional rosa luxemburg and karl liebknecht founded the spartacus league in response to russian events they hope germans had gone so tired of war and its cost so dissatisfied that a revolution might be possible to feed her despite an attic i thought his young. they tried three times and they failed and i think they failed not because of poor tactics but because they were up against a much much stronger opposition. as

a student in berlin became known among his fellow students for his keen intellect he was considered a leftist which drew the attention of the press in secret police. months completed a doctorate but his left wing ideas made it impossible to secure an academic post. in only eight hundred forty two he began working for a daily newspaper in cologne the harnish outside which was critical of the press and government in berlin. mugs use the newspaper to describe the desperate conditions of the working class the census bands many of his articles thus in his short tenure as the paper's editor marx helped change the face of political journalism.
7:32 am
what it will turn out as are also had a powerful impact on marx you were the newspaper editor he was forced to address the struggles faced by local farmers at the dawn of capitalism so that before that he was an intelligent clever radical thinker but very abstract and idealistic. i'm go from marx so i began reading mark shortly after finishing my confirmation classes but quickly god had an answer and so i think on that for someone else who could explain the world to move in for the knocks the quotes how i came to the early marks in house races where the error of german idealism as well as i'm can see you want to explain the world and how create a new society based on a principle was always driven by an immensely important desire for freedom. marks marks the prophet flagstick icons who are as revered as someone who promised salvation to humankind he never actually existed. that image is the result of bad

propaganda as we've heard from. go on. that propaganda would later also be used to glorify the outcomes of communist revolution. these propaganda posters say nothing of the millions who were killed in the subject union under stalin and in china under mao zedong. this idea put his sixteen months now see where the emphasis is very very much on the will of the communists. today there are many people who say china has hit with a system some stitches now a capitalist economy in a capsule this world with a regime that is communist in name only i'm not sure that we've seen in this story and maybe in twenty fifty there will be

a chinese states that still calls itself socialist. that you suppose you see that since two thousand and eight the crisis of capitalism has steadily grown more acute but what does this crisis mean today we find ourselves confronted with the very same questions that karl marx once face. seashell you know mugs. it's often said that the chinese revolution was a peasant revolution that is basically true mao sort ways of engaging presence through for example using traditions of opera. if.

the problem about socialism in backward countries was that although it aspired to give people decent conditions of life it effectively meant squeezing the population for the resources that were needed to build a strong and austria and military state. not just marx every chinese person knows him. here you know marxism leninism is the basis of our political system.
7:36 am
your songs you know we had big posters of marx at school that's how i came to know marxism right now my focus is on my own quality of life that's enough for me to go and make sure you. give us your bottom to be honest i believe marxism is slowly being forgotten right now all. you got. to go these are the so-called. the chinese government is investing a great deal of money to popularize marxist ideas in the form of books modern media and even its own t.v. show. and when young children come into the team we hold. many young people wrote to us after the show they said it had given them an entirely different picture of karl marx marx was no longer just a poster hanging on the wall they could now relate to him in their real actual lives. marx is still influential and even very influential he's still relevant

my central theme is the great seeker to use is that the core of marxist thought his philosophical views and his life because it's just all great individuals have two important characteristics. first they have made a meaningful contribution to human society okies a new ship with. the end second their spirit is marked by firm conviction that a strong will and great determination because. these characteristics merit suppressions in this work but. the statue of marx has a high forehead and deep set. but it's also decisive in the way that it strives to the future he is always looking forward to the future. the family is not honest about. ok ok ok there's

the proletariat can only choose where to sell their labor and choose where they will be chained. all the workers are paid for their labor what they produce is not in service of their own needs but the needs of their employer. the worker produces grains for the mills of another. the worker is trapped in a vicious circle. his labor directly increases the wealth of the capitalists which only serves to intensify his own exploitation. society as a whole as more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps into two great classes directly facing each other. in the am.
